LEWISTON – A new knitting club called the Lewiston Knit-Wits will hold its first meeting from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday on the second floor of the Historic Opera Hall, 736 Center St.

The group is open to knitters of all ages and levels of experience. Participants can bring their knitting supplies and work on their own knitting projects or they can propose a project to the group.

Liz Kovacs, one of the organizers, said, “If you would like to learn to knit, just bring some yarn and needles and you’ll find a mentor to get you started. The aim is to have a relaxed and enjoyable evening, connect with others and have fun.” Coffee, tea and cookies will be available.

The group will meet on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. It is open to the public free of charge, and reservations are not required. There are two flights of stairs to the upper hall; it is not wheelchair accessible.
